This was a delightful story with romance, drama and a wonderful happy ever after ending. I can't wait to start the next book in this series.

I like the drift and the feelings but this story just doesn't quite come together. Really bad editing contributed to the disappointment.
I’d like to think this book may have opened my eyes to life on the other side. Definitely a very good read
Variety of intrigue, mystery, interesting characters, romance. Enjoyed the intrique and kept me turning the pages. Will continue the series as I understand it includes an evil ex-husband. Hmmmmm.....get to compare ex-husband notes with this new author.
Willow meets Grant, not knowing he n is her brother’s friend. They have a tough relationship, both wanting more or maybe not. They have to figure a few things out g th it’s.
This was the perfect story, friendship, heroes, romance, and a little thriller action, without all the explicit sex. Lots of kissing though. Loved it!
This book is like watching a hallmark movie, only better. A little mystery, a little Romance and great Florida settings.
I don't have much to say that other reviewers have already said, so I'll say "ditto"! Engaging characters, intriguing plot, sweet romance, beautiful setting (I live in Sarasota FL, which we residents call "paradise"). I had a hard time putting it down when it was time to go to bed, woke up wondering what would happen next in the story. Juliet is a lovely writer. I'm a (nonfiction) writer myself, so I really appreciate good writing. I've already read book 2 in the Valencia Cove series -- loved it, too! - and just ordered book 3. Yes, these books are a perfect break from pandemic stress!
Willow ran the ecotour boat, changed from a fishing boat, that her brother left to her. She tried to keep everything together by herself. Grant came to town to check on her family as he'd promised her brother. He never expected the trouble that she'd gotten herself into.
